What to Know

Both teams have lost three in a row going in to tonight’s game. The Red Wings will again be without J.T. Compher, Klim Kostin, Dylan Larkin and David Perron tonight. Perron will be serving the second game of his six-gme suspension. …

Former Red Wing Jakob Vrana, who was traded to St. Louis last season, has apparently worn out his welcome there, too. The Blues put him on waivers today. …

The Red Wings are coming off a 6-3 loss at Dallas on Monday night.  “I think we’ve proven to ourselves that I think we gotta be pretty much on all the time,” coach Derek Lalonde said. “Even more so probably now. I’m not gonna say we have to play perfect with what our current lineup is, but if we can clean up some of those turnovers, some of our D zone mistakes, we’ll have a better chance (tonight).”….

The Red Wings called up Jonatan Berggren, Austin Czarnik and Zach Aston-Reese before Monday’s game and put them on the same line. Berggren scored a goal. “They gave us some minutes,” Lalonde said. “That’s all you can ask of them. They’ll get better from that, just getting tonight’s experience. Certainly a positive.”

The Blues have struggled on both sides of the red line, scoring only 2.78 goals per game and allowing 3.22 per contest. Goalie Jordan Binnington has been solid, though. He has a save percentage of .911 and a GAA of 3.00 this season. …

St. Louis is coming off a stretch where the Blues were on the road in 11 of their last 15 games. They now begin a stretch of 11 home games in their next 15. …

Here’s a stat to watch: The Blues are 12-0-0 when scoring first this season.
